A book

A book is the most basic of objects, essentially a pile of paper and ink. But combine it with the curious mind of a child and a book ignites change of the world-shifting variety. Give a teacher a book and it opens a world of hope and possibility for students. It really is as simple as this – buy a book, put it in the hands of a teacher or child, change lives. A pile of books stacks up to a bundle of dreams and a heap of possibilities. Books inspire young minds, nurture burgeoning imaginations and impart the desire and know-how to change the world. Put books in the hands of boys and girls and help them turn the page to a better day for themselves and their communities.

Canadians have distributed over 600,000 books around the world, letting more children turn the page to a better day. If piled, all these books would stack higher than Mount Everest and open a world of opportunity as endless as children’s sky-high potential!
